Hey ! this is the prize for :iconnephilie: ; it's been a while since the last time I drew Galadriel alone.

Aaaanyway, it's a sort of sequel of the drawing "see you in Valinor"

So, here is the Lady on her way back home after 3 Ages of Exile (though I never imagined this journey as a joyous one...there's something sad in it)

The summer is coming to an end, so I used really vivid colors with the sky ; I hope it's not bad.



PS : OMG, some people should be banned from writing fanfictions ! (Crossdressing Elrond should be illegal, GaladrielxArwen is baaad, threesome between Celeborn, Galadriel and Haldir as a teenager is baaad ! ...my poor brain...how can so young people be so crude and precise about sex ?)

I admit that I still do not understand why they did not leave together? What could hold Celeborn in Middle-earth?

Elle a l'air triste, sans sa moitié. Sublime.

thanks, everybody is always writing about the joy when she left but I think it was heartbreaking... of course Valinor was her home but she arrived in Middle Earth when she was around 250 years old, she's leaving this place at more than 6500 years old...she married there, she had a child who had children....Middle Earth has become her home...

Stunning! You captured her expression EXACTLY as I would imagine it to be at that time.

It is the first I have ever seen to truly express the feelings of the Elves.

And because I, myself, am an elf *ahem* , I truly appreciate this piece. :)

There's a strange ghostly feel to the image, sorta like someone outside of time. I like that.

As for you idea about the weird fanfictions, totally agree.

well, thanks, I'm glad that you notice it. The "out of time" feeling is a characteristic of the elves. The same way that time passes slowly and quickly for them... because they're so old and never change

She looks wonderful! It's definitely one of my favourite fanarts of Galadriel.
You did a great job on it, on her expression and the coloring... beautiful, beautiful work!

I'd really like to join her. The weather seems amazing ;P chez moi it's bad as always ...
but now about the picture. I really like the effect with the sun which shines onto her hair and makes it glow :3 her face seems a bit sad but strong and hopeful. Great one!

By the way I really agree with you in the point of fanfictions xD
there are several I'd like to forbid. Crazy stuff o.O usually I read the artist's comment before reading the actual story. To be warned xD
